about: vestal candle

Local beeswax candles handmade by the sea in New England. Vesta is the roman goddess of hearth and home. Her priestesses were called Vestals, and they tended the sacred flame in the Temple of Vesta; a fire that could never go out, for it represented Vesta's protection.

 

My candles aim to continue that theme of protection and intention in your home. I only use

100% local beeswax and I only use plants and essential oils for scent, never artificial fragrance.

Vestal Candle is a one-woman show, born out of a desire for a clean burning, natural candle that evoked a certain feeling. 

I spend my days swirling molten beeswax in a cauldron and stirring in medicinal herbs and oils to conjure up nymphs and nostalgia.
